First bell pepper
Over the weekend I pulled a handful of spring-sown carrots, two zucchinis, the first few purple beans, and the vegetable I'm most excited about: my first bell pepper! It's a Purple Beauty Bell that I started from seed back in January.
It's small -- only two inches tall -- but I think it's the most wonderful pepper, because I grew it! I'm planning on giving it a starring role in a corn salsa, using fresh sweet corn from Sunday's farmers' market and fresh cilantro from the herb garden. Mmmm, my mouth is watering already.
